Description Technical Specs
This pendant started out as an experiment in forging aluminum. I decided that I would completely form the aluminum in one heat because it's hard to tell when aluminum is hot and I didn't want to risk making a mess. The aluminum S curve was formed from an odd shaped cut off from another project. I wasn't sure what shape it was going to end up when I started, but I'm happy with the end shape. It's a rather elegant and traditional forged shape.

One of the things I like best about this pendant is that it has so many different metals. The aluminum S scroll, the serpentine iron scroll that makes up the eye, a turned brass plate on one side, and a penny that was given to me after someone left it on a train track on the other.

It has a story. It's one of a kind and I know it will sit well when worn. I realize as I look at this piece, that not only is the design element important to any work but the quality of the craft is also important. I want to exceed expectations with both.
